WELCOME TO TO THE TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS

Welcome to TCI SAFE™, where you'll find updated information on how to safely travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands.


Visit the Turks and Caicos Island is simple and safe...now even easier:

the TCI Government only requires all visitors 18 years old and older to show proof of vaccination (to airline and TCI officials).

Negative Covid-19 test and Insurance are no longer required.
Pre-travel authorisation is no longer required (no TCI ASSURED portal)


IMPORTANT

An Emergency Travel Insurance that includes provisions for quarantine costs is still strongly recommended. Many countries, such as US and Canada, still require a negative COVID test for pre-arrival. In case of a positive test result, the cost of a quarantine period and other medical costs are responsibility of the traveler.
